There is some light crackle during some of the quiter moments  of the Album ( very common with this record), mainly at the start and end of side 1, but this does not overpower the overall sound quality and the Album still sounds  great. Audio rating is  an easy Excellent.

The two postcard stickers are 1st press 'Crack Back FasPrint' version.


The black die-cut inner has the patent numbers and 'MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN' printed on it.



The  'midnight blue' tinted sleeve with large purple sticker grades as  Very Good+ with some wear to the corners and some minor. ring wear. The inside of the cover looks good and the spine is fully  intact.
